This separation caused what was known as the Civil War. The reasons for this secession were disputes over new land, an unbalanced economy, and the issue of slavery. In conclusion, the United States faced a Civil War due to sectionalism on views that include disputes over new land, an unbalanced economy, and the issue of slavery. These perspectives were to conclude whether the new states should be slave or free, that the North had a richer economy than the South, and the abolition of slavery. The main reason why the South seceded was because they didn't want the abolition of slavery. The South relied on slaves so much, that they could not even think about life without them. In the North, a freed slave, Harriet Beecher Stowe, wrote about how life was like as a slave. Her novel "Uncle Tom's Cabin" gave Northerners a new perspective on slavery and gave birth to many abolitionists in the North. Because the South prospered on slaves and used them to help stimulate their own economy, they were not going to let slavery go without a fight. There were also some differences between the North and the South that led to the war. The North had a far better economy than the South, with about twice as many soldiers, factories and people to work in the factories. More factories benefited the North's economy rather than the South, increasing tensions between the two regions. Southerners relied on their plantations and slaves to work on them, so the fact that the Northerners wanted to take away their slaves just pushed the South of the edge. One cause of the Civil war was the dispute over new land. The South wanted it to become slave territory, and the North wanted it to be free. Ultimately, California became a free state, and Utah and New Mexico were to be decided by popular sovereignty. This was one of many other compromises the North made with the South, including the Fugitive Slave Act. (Lincoln > Obama+Romney)
